MY FOCUS FOR 2019
I'm excited about what's already planned for this year. And really looking forward to new adventures I don't even know about yet! Here's what will be happening for me on the work front this year.
This is a big year for courage building
When Brené released her book Dare to Lead late last year, the leadership focused Certified Daring Way Facilitators were invited to start their learning programme to become Certified Dare to Lead Facilitators. This process is ongoing as I write. Brené expects that the rigour of her research is matched by those of us privileged to take her work to the world.
I'm very excited to be offering a new curriculum designed for leaders. It is a powerful and practical skills building programme. This will be a big part of my work this year.
This work started in 2018 with a new collaboration with Dr Katie Kilty from the USA. It's all about equipping athletes and coaches to play the bigger game of life, so they thrive in life and sport. "Better people make better athletes." (Adapted from a Brian Lochore quote.)
Katie and I are both Certified Dare to Lead and Daring Way facilitators, so this work draws heavily on this work.
Adult development focus
In 2018 I set out to get my Leadership Circle certification. The Leadership Circle is a powerful 360 leadership assessment built on a vast array of research, including adult development.
Also, embarked on a coach development programme called Growth Edge Coaching which also focuses on adult development. It's just got underway and will continue through until the end of March 2019. I'm really looking forward to this learning and integrating it into my coaching practice.
Growing effective people
I've been a facilitator for Collective Intelligence for around six years, and just love this work. I facilitate five groups and have seen the fantastic results for members.
Collective Intelligence bring together teams of leaders and entrepreneurs who start off as strangers and end up being trusted business confidants. Groups meet three times a year in highly structured confidential sessions focused on getting tangible actions for team members. I'm looking forward to the first round of meetings in early 2019.
VENTURES SUPPORTED BY ARTEMIS GROUP
Artemis is a warrior goddess with a nurturing side. It is only right that my company of the same name supports enterprises who align with her and with my values as a business women.
There are two organisations that receive my ongoing support.
Business Council for Peace
Artemis has supported this organisation for over ten years. BCP does a fantastic job of helping entrepreneurs in countries recovering from conflict to and grow successful businesses, create employments and build a peaceful future.
As a former elite sportswoman (we're talking the 1980's), I have lived and experienced the invisibility of women's sport. I am delighted to see that is changing. Artemis supports Locker Room, which is part of newsroom.co.nz, dedicated to in-depth coverage of women's sport.
